The Traveling Camera Sack

The Traveling Camera Sack.

The perfect way to protect your gear on the go!

This week I found myself with a few spare moments to do something for me ~What is that?!!
Unheard of in my hectic mom-life & Crazy kids schedule.
I certainly don’t know how to sit still for very long!  My creative brain is always running, so I dug out my sewing machine, found my fabric stashed away and set out to create.
I didn’t have a project in mind when once I had the machine & fabric set up, but I found myself piecing together a little something for my camera gear.
Feeling Crafty
This product I feel is something most of us “mom-tographers” can relate to.
I like to bring my camera with me, but I dislike carrying the bulky camera bag & all the unnecessary items that I don’t need.
I prefer to travel “light” without excess baggage.  I wrap my precious cargo into a kitchen towel and toss it into my oversized mom-bag.

Behold.  The camera sack was created.  It’s a custom fit wrap for your camera when you want to travel lightly and efficiently with a stow n’ go philosophy.
The inside of the sack is lined with fleece and a small pocket for a spare battery or Memory Card.
I’ve tested it out on a few of my camera set-ups and found it to fit my gear (small lenses, large lenses and lens hoods included, battery grip).
The outside has a velcro closure with an adjustable fit.

I would love to offer these up for grabs if anyone is interested in protecting their gear in style.
Colors on hand are limited (see images below).
I am also taking requests, if you are looking for a color scheme to coordinate with your camera bags.
These are not just for professional photographers, they are great for the everyday mom-tog who wants to throw & go while protecting their gear in style.
Camera Sacks are available for $25.00 including Shipping & Handling.
These bags are up for grabs on my etsy store, click here

The images listed below are the styles & colors on-hand & ready to ship.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!!

Vanessa and Jeff Engagement – Gorgeous Spring Afternoon!

TellaStory Photography’s 2nd Annual Fall Mini Sessions

Fall Mini Sessions. Osceola Photographer is hosting it’s 2nd annual fall mini session date. Update your family photo’s.

Vanessa and Jeff Engagement – Gorgeous Spring Afternoon!

Their paths crossed at a friends birthday party.  After learning more about each other early in the relationship they knew it was meant to be…

They enjoy spending their time together renovating homes and relaxing side by side.  Working movie quotes into everyday conversation.

These two sure have a quirky side that I adore.  I knew that we would would click when they told me they knew every word to Home Alone!

Lake Nokomis Engagement Session

With a surprise proposal on Thanksgiving Day, Jeff got down on his knee and asked to make it official after 6 years!
Their kitty cat may have been in on his little secret.

Check out this happy couple during their engagement session.
We walked around their neighboring park on a gorgeous spring afternoon!
Nokimis Park was busy, but that didn’t stop us from capturing a few simple moments between these two love birds.

A-Year-In-Review 2015 – Tellastory Photography


A-Year-In-Review 2015 – Tellastory Photography. The ending of the year also means a new beginning.  This year has been such a huge transition for myself as an artist.  As a mother & a tight rope balancing act of all things in between.  If I could find that scape napkin that held my resolutions for 2015, I’m sure I would have tackled each item with vigor.  Somehow the napkin was misplaced and I set course on a path of my own.  When it comes down to the bare bones of it;  I’m finding my voice and learning to craft stories thru my lens.

As 2015 is near the brink of completion; it certainly doesn’t seem that long ago.  365 days to be exact.  As usual, we pack as much as we can into each day, each week, each minute.  From camping & road trips with my kiddos, to a full wedding season and meeting new families.  I am daring to dream bigger for 2016!

I want to thank each of my clients that have come along with me on this journey in 2015 and entrusted me with telling their story.  You’ve let me cry at your wedding, laugh with you during sessions, and run around with your families.  Watching your life unfold through my lens and archiving your memories has been a sincere privilege.

A huge thank you to my 4 amazing kids!  You make me kinder, more patient and open my eyes to see life with simplicity.  I strive constantly to be the person you see through your eyes.  I want to lead the way to your dreams and show you by example; you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
Thank you to my amazing parents.  Through thick and thin, you have been a huge driving force.  Leading by example, displaying the meaning of unconditional love and your generous support has opened a new world and a life of happiness for myself and the kids.  I couldn’t do this without you.  I know these simple words may seem trivial for all that you’ve done for me.  Thank You. I love you.

And to my future clients.  I simply can not wait to document your stories.

And I finish typing out my final words.  Tears flowing freely and my heart soaring with hope.  We are on the threshold of 2016, I hope you find the simple moments to be the most fulfilling.  Reflect, embrace & enjoy.

Here is a collection of 2015 Stories.  My heart will be forever full with these memories.

Attending a Wedding You’ve gotta see this!

Attending a Wedding You’ve gotta see this!

Have you been guest at a wedding, or perhaps part of the bridal party?
I bet you haven’t seen anything like this yet…..  please follow along, it’s worth reading.

There are weddings that choose to be un-plugged.
Where guest must leave their cell phones tucked away, out of sight, out of mind and just be present at the event.
In the moment.  That is a great idea- however, I have not attended a wedding like this.

Typically I witness this:
Attending a Wedding? You've gotta see this!  Attending a Wedding? You've gotta see this! Attending a Wedding? You've gotta see this!

As a wedding photographer, I am one person.  I can only see from my viewpoint.
There are millions of mini scenes that unfold during the day!
In fact it’s comparable to crazy hectic and certainly never a dull moment.
As much as I dream of being in 2-3-4-5-6 places at once, it’s simply impossible.

HJW-5478 6

SOOOOOOO, the solution.
Use your “i-tographer” friends & family.
That’s right, I want everyone taking pictures with their cell phones!
They can capture moments that I may miss because I’m working with the Bride and Groom during our private mini session.
Use our selfie sticks to take Group Photo’s or the famous Selfies.  SNAP AWAY!!
Selfie Stick  Selfie Stick Selfie Stick

What happens to all those cell phone pictures??
Usually they get buried when the phone dies.  Or deleted in effort to save space on the phone…. am I right?
Stay with me please.  This is the fun part.

Insta Print Photo Booth

Guest can print their images on-site at the event.
All of those pretty pictures we asked them to take during the day can be printed directly to our printer.
No wires.
It’s simple and easy to do.

I have created this mini video to help explain our NEW INSTA PRINT.
I guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it.


What do you think??
I’d love to take this to your next event.  Guest interaction.  Plus at the end of the event:  you get your printed images delivered the same day in a custom photo box.
Contact if you are interested in booking this at your next party.

We’ll see you there 😉
